Tangents – Jindabyne (Four Tet Remix)

Read More

Despite a minor setback due to SoundCloud’s new copyright protection laws, Four Tet recently posted a remix of “Jindabyne” on his profile, whilst expressing his frank disappointment on Twitter, “soundcloud is a total slice of shit right now…all the joy is getting sucked out of it.

Although SoundCloud’s new policies are somewhat upsetting, Four Tet’s new remix is definitely not. The original track was produced by a band called Tangents, who are often described as “post everything”; a label that matches well with the genre of this track, which at best can be deemed experimental jazz.

With his magical touch, “Jindabyne” has gained momentum through an increased BPM and a rhythmic bass line. He has transformed the original track to one that you can hear in the early sunlight—whether it be during the after hours or at the start of a sublime day. Enjoy.

Those of you who miss the Nervous Records/Strictly Rhythm driven New York Latin House era of the ’90s might want to check out this hidden gem. Hailing from Los Angeles, California, SAAND’s latest track is the second release off Sabo‘s Sol Selectas. Bursting with warm Latin vocals and whopping congas, this song is perfect for the upcoming months.

Butch – Jack The System

Read More

Butch is known for his high energy sets, skillful productions and his self-edited comic promo videos and photos on social media (check one out here). This time around, the German producer hits the bull’s eye with his brand new acid house track “Jack The System”. The word “jack” echoes throughout, especially during the deep climax midway into the song that resolves into a section of heavy claps with a two-step rhythm.

The track was released in February via Tuskegee Records. Run collaboratively by Seth Troxler and The Martinez Brothers, the label is a perfect match to Butch’s music taste and humor. Listen below to “Jack The System” which was premiered on Dummy Mag.

Claude VonStroke – Who’s Afraid Of Detroit (Marc Houle Remix)

Read More

I recently had the pleasure of seeing Claude VonStroke play an insane B2B set with Green Velvet at the Movement Electronic Music Festival in Detroit. This year marked the 10 year anniversary of Movement, as well as the track “Who’s Afraid of Detroit,” which was released on VonStroke’s label DirtyBird.

Below is the Marc Houle remix of “Who’s Afraid of Detroit” which has a much more minimal take on the original keyboard melody. It’s been released as a part of the compilation Who’s Afraid of Detroit? – 10th Anniversary Remixes; the album includes the likes of Octave One, Visionquest and label head, Claude VonStroke.

The EP came out on the Undefined imprint as the fourth release of a series that showcases long lasting producers. Check out the previews below.
